Writing Your Narrative Just Got 10 times Easier!

Customizing Your Narrative Description of Programs and Activities Couldn't Be Easier

Each kit contains an MSWord file with the exact wording we’ve used to prepare the description of programs and activities for the type of organization included in the kit. Most of these activities are charitable, educational and religious in nature. You will find some activities may be similar to your organization and some that are not. If you’re giving away something, teaching something or conducting religious activities, you can use our templates as a guide to help you describe your organization’s planned activities.

Example:  The kit may have descriptions for food distribution or clothing distribution to homeless people; but your organization is giving away backpacks filled with school supplies to children in low-income areas. You will change the wording and the target group to adapt the description to your organization.

Here's Another Example:  We have a transitional living program kits for Ex-offenders; and another kit for Women. You plan to target runaway teens. You will change the wording for the target group.

Use our template as a guide to get an understanding of what type of information and just how much information you can include in the description. You should not expect that all your intended programs and activities will be included in our kit as no two organizations are exactly alike.

    my question is would this Application help the business get their 501 c 3 you been in business how long

    • This sample was for a new 501c3 organization. It is a good example to follow, but you may have other issues to work through since you’ve been in business for a while. If you incorporated as a for-profit, then switching to a not-for-profit is an issue.

      If you were incorporated as a not-for-profit organization for more than 27 months and still haven’t filed your 501c3, then that’s another issue you’ll have to address as you respond to certain questions and complete Schedule E of Form 1023.

      • delonia lowe says:

        i did not meet the 27 month period and i am concerned about what to do at this point. What would you suggest.

    Will it cost me $198.00 to get a copy of Sample 501c3 Application for Transitional Living Programs for Women
    & Sample 501c3 Application for Outreach Ministries Kit…I am wanting to open an non-profit home to help individual with mental health issues for women and men?

    • Hello Margaret,

      You may purchase only one kit. The Transitional Living Programs for Women kit should be just fine.
      You can tweak the wording for your programs and activities to target your niche (i.e. mental health issues for men and women).

      Peace and Blessings,

  3. courtney says:

    I want to open a transitional living program for kids that leave foster care, 18-25, boys and girls. Would i use the one you created for the womens program to?

    • Hi Courtney,

      Yes, the Sample 501c3 Application for Transitional Living Program for Women would be the kit. You can simply customize the description to show you are targeting this group.

      By the way, I am so grateful for what you are doing. Having been a foster parent of two children and still being supportive to one of them who’s now 19, I know there is a great need. May God bless you and what you are doing.


  4. Silvia Trice says:


    I have a few questions about the application process for a non profit 501 (c)3.

    I wanted to know if you could guestimate a turn around time for approval and will I be able to submit a pending status?

    I also wanted to know if the L3C Hybrid non profit for profit corporation and a private foundation ccompetible with 501(c)3?

    Thanks I am looking forward to the starter kit


    • Hi Silvia,

      The IRS does not have a fixed timeline to process applications.

      I can only advise you from experience, as my applications have been approved in 5 to 6 weeks.
      Some have been approved in 3 to 4 weeks.
      Every now and then (but its quite rare), one of mine will get submitted to a review agent.
      I just knew my 501c3 application for a CDC would be assigned to a review agent.
      But it got approved in 3 weeks.

      If your return is assigned to an agent for review, the wait is much longer.
      According to this link on the IRS website: Where Is My Exemption Application?, its 9/6/11 and they are assigning returns that were submitted in March 2011 to an agent for review.

      You asked “Will I be able to submit a pending status?”. If this has to do with a grant application, its up to the agency awarding the grant. Some may want the Letter of Determination, while others may accept that you’ve submitted the application.

      Peace and Blessings!

  5. Hi,

    My name is Stephanie and I am needing to know if your starter kit will fully give me all details in filing for a non-profit license for a Drug and alcohol treatment house for women in recovery.

  6. RTC Clinical Consulting says:

    What application sample would I use for homeless shelter for teens?

  7. RTC Clinical Consulting says:

    Adding to previous comment: runaway shelter . Thanks

    • Hi There,

      Sorry for the delay. I’ve been really busy and finally getting to review comments.
      I know its been a while and you’ve probably resolved your issue. But here goes…

      The sample 501c3 application kit for Transitional Program for Women would be a good resource to use as a guide.
      You will customize the details to indicate your target market is runaway teens instead of women.

      I hope this helps,

  8. Hello,

    I noticed that you have a packet for outreach ministries, which is what I currently do. However, I am looking toward transitional housing for women as this has been my passion for 15 years. Do I have to purchase both packets or should I just start with the outreach packet?

    Thank you so much for your time

    • Hello Nikki,

      You should not purchase both kits. I would suggest purchasing the 501c3 Sample Kit the Transitional Living Program.
      I can send you the outreach ministry program descriptions after your purchase.

      Peace and Blessings!
      Belinda Whitfield

  9. Octavia says:

    Hello, I’m interested in starting my own transitional housing for young ladies 17-21 after care program. For ladies that are discharged from residential or homeless.

    What Kit should I purchased?

    Do the IRS charge a processing fee?

    • Hello Octavia,

      Sorry for the delayed response. It’s been a very busy week for me. You’ll want to order the kit for the transitional living program for women. You may customize the narrative description of programs target young ladies. Yes, the IRS will charge a fee to process your application if your annual revenues will exceed $10,000 over the next four years.

      I hope this helps!

      Peace and Blessings!
